Kananaskis Valley Trail Report

Print Report

Updated: April 28, 2017

Significant snow this week set trail conditions back yet again, but current weather models call for a return to seasonal temperatures later in the week. At time of writing, valley bottoms are snow covered with only paved trails having bare sections. As temperatures increase into the weekend anticipate very wet and slippery conditions throughout the area. If you are venturing onto routes or alpine terrain, come prepared for snow, ice and spring avalanche conditions.

Notes:

  1. Bears and cougars are active - Carry bear spray, keep dogs on leash, remain observant and observe wildlife safety techniques
  2. Ensure you consult the Kananaskis Country Avalanche Report prior to venturing out.
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees,
